Meet Toby

Me: Isn’t it wonderful to start the week with some good news for a change?

Nell: It certainly is.

Me: Everyone meet Toby. Dave and Harriet’s nephew and Nell’s great nephew. He will be coming to live with Tony and Sue very soon.

Nell: And the clever boy already knows how to play Cheeky Animals.

Me: Yes, he’s going to settle in perfectly. His nickname is Fluffy because of his fluffy hair. A bit like you really.

Nell: Excuse me? I have thick, wavy hair. Fluffy, indeed.

Me: Yes, of course.

Nell: Anyway, I’ll tell you who isn’t going to settle in perfectly.

Me: Who?

Nell: That wretched lion. You do realise Lionel King is still here.

Me: Why isn’t he at the police station?

Nell: He is still helping Sally with her enquiries.

Me: Is Lionel in the living room?

Nell: Yes. Why?

Me: I thought I saw Knitwear Wolf go in there just now with a very serious face.

Nell: You probably did. I know Rupert wanted a quiet word with Lionel alone.

Me: They’re not going to fight, are they?

Nell: Why on earth would they do that?

Me: Because of you, Nell. Rupert is very protective of you and Lionel wanted to take you away.

Nell: I’m not going anywhere.

Me: Knitwear Wolf will make sure of that.

Nell: Rupert and I are just friends.

Me: If you say so, but I know what I see.

Nell: Well, I can see Gladys and the llamas limbering up in the field. Why is she wearing an Aztec crown?

Me: Alejandro gave it to her. He says she is his queen.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: If Rupert had an Aztec crown you would be wearing it.

Nell: Nonsense. Rupert would never have an Aztec crown.

Me: No. Sorry.
